Highlighted in Rolling Stone as, “one of the coolest festivals in America” and acclaimed by American Songwriter as, “A rock and roll paradise,” the Forecastle Festival has evolved from a small community event into one of the country’s premier festival destinations, attracting 75,000 fans each year. The festival moved around a lot in its early years as it outgrew venue after venue and booked more notable acts with each successive year. In 2011, A.C. Entertainment (Bonnaroo) became co-producers and now the event — once a small gathering of local musicians — is not only the biggest festival in the state, but one of the great taste-making events in the country.
